∞ iTunes 9.2 paves the way for iOS 4 and iPhone 4

Apple on Wednesday released iTunes 9.2. It’s now available for download through the Software Update system preference.

The bulk of what’s changed with iTunes 9.2 has to do with supporting new features found in iOS 4, the new version of the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad operating system.

iOS 4 makes its debut on June 21, 2010, three days ahead of the release of the iPhone 4.

According to Apple, new features in iTunes 9.2 include:

  • Sync with iPhone 4 to enjoy your favorite music, movies, TV shows, books and more on-the-go
  • Sync and read books with iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 4 and iBooks 1.1
  • Organize and sync PDF documents as books. Read PDFs with iBooks 1.1 on iPad and any iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 4
  • Organize your apps on your iOS 4 home screens into folders using iTunes
  • Faster back-ups while syncing an iPhone or iPod touch with iOS 4
  • Album artwork improvements make artwork appear more quickly when exploring your library

    I wish we knew more about the OS. There's a sick patent in the last year that's like a DJ where you can cutoff parts of songs to fade into the next one. And you can input in the next few songs you want to come up.

    But it also has bluetooth keyboard support, you can name playlists on the fly, and other fun stuff. This stuff is known. Just wish I knew more. But Apple gets all the little things right, so it's not a headache.

    Is this update only for Americans?

    A frustrating aspect of Apple for everyone other than Americans is that often their global news announcements fail to mention it only applies to users in America. So many times I've downloaded and installed software only to be told it won't work outside of America.

    Now I am in that familiar position once again where I have to search to find out:

    is it this another "America Only" situation or is this iTunes update going to work world-wide?

      Nope it is available in Australia mate ;)

      Hit software update and it all should be there, also Jim is Canadian(I know this was written by Peter) so I would assume he would pipe up or Peter would have mentioned if it is US only, they're good like that. The iOS4 update is released on US time but has is available worldwide at the same time.

      I also don't really follow your point at least software wise it seems to me all Apple announcements apply to the world aside from things like the iPhone Apple Store app and when the hardware is announced Apple are pretty good at specifying where it will be available.

    I Think that Max is complaining about certain feature sets that are country specific; ie certain apps or videos are only available to computers running iTunes which are connected to an USA based IP address or are registered with an american bank or addressed credit card.

    The update from what I can see on the site is worldwide by the time that ios 4 comes out on Monday, you should have no problem getting it, and if you want to test it ahead of time, you can change your country to the us on the iTunes store and be able to download it. Hope this helps!
